Artists Make Books


This workshop introduces students to the scope of artist publications produced from the 1960s to today including: Alan Kaprow’s Days Off calendar, L.T.T.R.’s bespoke journals and my own newspaper The Moon, among others. Perhaps more importantly, students will acquire the skills to produce their own publications, from hand- made zines to more professionally printed multiples, utilising the latest software in desktop publishing (InDesign, Quark Xpress and Photoshop) and retro technologies such as the photocopier and stapler. The workshop will also strengthen participants’ research skills and provide basic training in digital publishing tools, picture research, graphic design, copy-editing, project-management, distribution and print buying.
